Hiring an expert in any field requires identifying the right person with the proper education, training and experience to represent your client. In addition, the ability to present a compelling case with the utmost skill and comprehensive knowledge during the litigation process is critical to the success of your case. Many “experts” have competency in one or two segments of the industry. Most worked many years ago in the industry that changes daily. Unfortunately, their knowledge and presentation reflect that outdated industry view.
Joel Feigenheimer is a graduate of the Cornell School of Hotel and Restaurant Management. While some experts tout a Cornell connection, check to see if they attended a seminar or graduated with a degree. Feigenheimer is presently the Restaurant Management Lead Faculty at the Chaplin School of Hospitality at Florida International University, teaching tomorrow’s restaurant and hospitality leaders. His consulting firm of realEats.org has celebrated its 10th year of offering hospitality operational consulting services.
Feigenheimer has successfully served as an expert witness pertaining to such issues as operator liability, dram shop, slip and fall, employee relations, landlord-tenant agreements, vendor disputes and other hospitality related issues. Compare experts, is yours Cornell trained? Are they presently involved in this fast paced, ever changing business or just a hired suit living off a reputation from years ago? Are they up to date on the latest trends and issues, or are they stuck in their era of 20-year-old operations? Can they present a compelling case based in fact and logic to support your client with the most updated expert testimony?
If not, please call. The first consultation is free however the advice may be invaluable. Remember, an expert witness should have a combination of education, training and experience.
